I believe we are discussing object caching, and not output caching at  
this point.

Implementing that kind of caching in phptemplate isn't that hard  
either. I'm just not sure
where it's useful at this point, as I believe block level caching is  
more useful (as caching is
a module developer oriented task, and not a theme designer oriented  

This was in one of chx's version of the regions patch, where each  
block had a 'cache' property,
including a callback to check for expiration.
